OCTOBER 10, 2021

Saw about sixty Cackling Geese over our house this morning, heading west toward Willamette River and Minto-Brown.

Saw five juncos in our garden this evening, higher than any summer count. They stay out late because I presume they don’t mind dim light as they often nest on the shadowy forest floor. They have to work around the several dozen American Goldfinches–I did not re-spot the white-corwned one today, I saw two bold Lesser Goldfinch males among the finchy throng.
